Having seen a documentary on the warriors we still weren’t prepared for the scale and impressive complex of the Terracotta Warriors. So well organised and astounding. Gets very crowded so we were glad to have a whisper device (earpiece) for his guided commentary. Won’t forget...More

The museum really is a must if you’re coming to China. It was really the highlight of the trip for me. First to take in the immensity of this undertaking and the uniqueness of each warrior is mind boggling. Then to understand all the work...More

Incredible museum. Definitely worth the visit but only with a private guide. I can't imagine trying to navigate it on my own. We would have missed so many things. Highly recommend Bryan Bai - Check out his reviews. This website is xianhistorytourguide.com

This is a place you cannot miss if you visit China. The intricate repair and the reset, repositioning of the warriors is just breathtaking. Plan to spend at least 4 hours there.

The terracotta army is the highlight of Xi,an. I took a private tour with a friend which was quite expensive RMB1600 for two people but worth it for the hotel pick up and a guide. It is worthwhile going early - plan to arrive before...More
